Are there certain pieces in your closet that are just your go-to staples? The clothing you could pick out + put together while half asleep or with your eyes closed + still look great in? For me it’s a white tee, some favorite denim + a great jacket. This leather bomber is a few years old + has that perfectly broken in appeal to it. Every time I slip it on I feel so comfortable, so me + also so cool. There’s just something about a nice leather jacket that ups the cool factor, especially now that I’m a mom and don’t wear “cool” stuff as much as I used to. Although the jacket is old, I’ve linked several great leather bombers since they are so in again right now for your viewing + shopping pleasure. The jeans are my current most favorite pair that have just the right amount of distress, the perfect light wash for spring + a great high rise. Paired with them is not just your average white tee but one with on trend cut out details. White tees are one of the best ways to update your wardrobe with current trends because I find that mine tend to wear out after some time + I always need 1 or 2 fresh ones for each season + usually find great ones with the best up to date details for under $50 each season. And then wear, wash, + repeat to my heart’s desire. (Same tee seen “dressed up” here.) These gold sneakers are my trusty new gold kicks – seriously, these are an amazing neutral shoe for on the go. I wear this pair all the time + love them for chasing around my little buddy + running errands.

And the final casual mom staple? A great cup of coffee. No joke, if you’re a mom you know how real the sleep struggle is + you probably know all the best coffee joints, home brews, and espresso machines on the market. Coffee = best friend. Most days I make a nice latte via my Nespresso machine or an iced coffee (all hail Dunkin Donuts coffee) at home + I have been known to have a little Starbucks treat every now + again… but recently I was in the neighborhood with a Phoenix Coffee + boy oh boy, I was in for a treat. This was one of the better lattes I’d had in months (if not years). Seriously, as all us coffee fueled mama bears know, not all coffee is created equal (even though all coffee gets the job done) and if you are in a neighborhood with a Phoenix Coffee go on in + get yourself a little cup of happy. (No, this is not sponsored, just one mama trying to help out another mama.) Cheers to a happy Monday, may it be filled with not only coffee that wakes you up but coffee that is delicious too. Xo, Jules.
